    So who's really performing?

    For the sake of enhancing the Nuggets forum, I figured I would put in a stats thread to see how our players are performing beyond the box-score. This is just a entry level introduction. Feel free to add suggestions of what to tack on or take away. Keep in mind of small sample size and the sites that I used are basketball reference and for a comparison hoopdata

    McGee wins, along with Faried. Can't much consider Mozzy or Randolph since neither has played but so few minutes.

    McGee's doing too good. He's much too effective and efficient. George had better bench him some more, especially down the stretch. And whatever you do, George, don't play McGee and Faried together.

    While this is a very small sample size, it's rather obvious that Faried and McGee have been our two most effective players.

    So GK's perception that he can not play them together shows some lack of understanding.

    What is our best lineup and who should be consistently getting minutes?

    Btw, Ty's average over the last six games: 8.6 ppg, including an 0-fer, 7 apg, and 31% shooting.

    Only person I see consistently performing every night is Faried. Gallo is coming back into form.

    very nice. Great find. According to that, it gives Karl reason to not play Faried/McGee together. 1-6 with Ty,Igua,Gallo, Faried, and McGee lineup ouch. I believe that's some fools gold though..

    I don't think we have seen our best lineup yet. Ill will has to get healthy..

    Just another thrown in. Defensive RAPM which is supposedly a better indicator of a players defense. 0 is average.

    Ty needs to step the **** up and earn that big paycheck he earned. The way that he's been struggling makes me wonder if he did enough or anything at all this off-season to prepare.

    Gallo won player of the night last night. Hopefully his ankle, knee, and shooting are coming around.
    I'm always happy to discuss anything from hoops, to hockey, to reality TV with anyone that is polite regardless of their opinion. With that said if you are disrespectful, dishonest, or an extremist type poster I may not waste my time replying to you.

    Been awhile since I've updated it but I finally got the chance to do so. Replaced Drtg with xRAPM

    Nice stats

    Pretty much in line with what I observe watching the games.
    Nuggets 2014-15 motto: Return to mediocrity

    Melo come back, any kind of intelligent fan could see
    There was something in everything about you
    Melo come back, you can blame it all George Karl
    He was wrong and I just can't live without you
